Climate champions, organisations on the frontline of the climate crisis, are creating something extraordinary. A planet powered by low-carbon start-ups, bold green policies, liveable cities, better work and clean energy for all. We help these innovators attract investment and funding, build their networks, and create radical change. We do this because we believe in them, and their vision of a cleaner, fairer, healthier world.
We help organisations learn and share ideas through masterclasses and workshops, and bring them closer to their key audiences – from local authorities in the UK to investors in energy access.
But our work doesn’t stop there. We are helping UK schools radically lower their emissions (and their energy bills too). We are helping climate innovators withstand the coronavirus pandemic, and power the green recovery. And we are taking on the global cooling challenge, a neglected climate battle.
We can only create a fairer, better, low-carbon future if we improve diversity in our organisation and work for change in the wider climate sector. A broader range of views and experiences will help us understand the challenges different communities face, and support solutions that work for all.
To achieve our goals we are working with fellow members of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trust on a common diversity, equity and inclusion policy. In recent years we have taken practical steps such as improving the diversity of our board and awards judging panels, and introducing inclusive recruitment measures. But there is much more to do – so we pledge to continue investing in action, and to monitoring and sharing the results of our efforts.
